According to a research done by Newcastle University that teeth not necessary is cleaner if you brush your teeth longer and harder. If you use brute force, you can damage the protective layer on the teeth and hurting your gums. The researchers recommend people to brush their teeth for about 2 minutes and apply pressure equivalent to the weight of an orange at 150 grams. Go find an orange with that weight and put it on your teeth, feel it, then use that force to brush your teeth.
I normally brush my teeth between 2 to 3 minutes, twice a day. I know some people are using the length of a song on radio to determine the right amount of time to brush teeth. A typical song lasts about 2 to 3 minutes. Not a bad idea. I also have friends who told me they spend less than 30 seconds to brush teeth with the excuse they are rushing time for work.
How about you, how long do you brush your teeth?
